I have been looking for an answer to this question all morning and i cannot find anything to point me in the right direction. We have several customizations to a SharePoint page which displays list data. The column in question is a multi-line text field with append changes enabled. The page is supposed to display the most recent comment from this field and it partially works.
If the last field to be updated in the list item is the comment field (Notes1), then the results will show correctly and the last comment will be displayed (using oListItem.get_item('Notes1')). However, if a user updates any other field in the list item, the results return null until a new comment is added.
Is there any way to get around this? I need to display the last entered comment in this field regardless of which fields were updated. Is it possible to pull all comments from the item or is it possible to retrieve the history of the item using the CSOM?
