I am using the Client Side Object Model Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.dll and Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Runtime.dll against SharePoint 2013, and am able to pull down data from custom lists.

What I am attempting to do now is to pull down the version history of each item. Is this possible from the client side?

It appears the code I've found out there is server side code?

I've tried looking for the Microsoft.SharePoint.dll, but it appears to be a server only library?

Client Object Model doesn't provide versions property (which is available only on Server Side Object Model)

I believe your only hope is to rely on the web services

SPservices to retrieve version history of items in SharePoint List 2007?

  • Thanks! It is surprising the CSOM doesn't allow this functionality. I am able to access this now through the web service.
