Paste into the following code your list id and item id:

<a href="#" onclick="SP.UI.ModalDialog.showModalDialog( {url: '/_layouts/Versions.aspx?list={list guid}&ID={item id}&IsDlg=1'} ); return false;">version history</a>

Thanks.. I am pretty new to SharePoint. i want to display version history dialog for the current item from my web page. I could not put static item Id here in the above link. I want some piece of code where i can put dynamic item Id. (The current item id which user has selected.). I guess i need to write some code using server side api for this. Can you please help me by sending that piece of code or any useful link. Thanks.. – SPBeginer Nov 14 '12 at 14:27
Correct code to get selected list item is below – Dmitry Kozlov Nov 14 '12 at 18:17

You can use get the current selected item in the LVWP by using Client side object model code. An example would be like this:

    var context = SP.ClientContext.get_current();
    var selectedItems = SP.ListOperation.Selection.getSelectedItems(context);
    var listId = SP.ListOperation.Selection.getSelectedList();
    var itemIds = "";
    for (var i = 0; i < selectedItems.length; i++) {
    itemIds += selectedItems[i].id + ",";
