I am working with SharePoint hosted apps, and I require to display the default SharePoint version history page of a list item in a modal dialog popup.
(url/_layouts/15/Versions.aspx?list={"+listId+"}&ID="+itemId). However I get "This page cannot be display" as in the screenshot.
This is the piece of code I used.

var hostweburl = decodeURIComponent(manageQueryStringParameter('SPHostUrl'));
var listId = 'F7C3D94A-9762-47C6-8A9C-024922982574';
var itemId = 100;
var versionURL = hostweburl + "/_layouts/15/Versions.aspx?list={" + listId + "}&ID=" + itemId;
ExecuteOrDelayUntilScriptLoaded(openVersionHistory, "SP.js");

    function openVersionHistory() {
        var options = {
            title: 'Version History',
            url: versionURL,
            width: 500,
            height: 500

        return false;

enter image description here

Modal Dialog is nothing but an iframe and this generally happens in SharePoint App development as the default value of X-FRAME-OPTIONS is set to Same Origin in every SharePoint request which means your SharePoint site will disallow loading of contents in an iframe from other domains.

For this you have to set <WebPartPages:AllowFraming runat="server" /> in your master page which will allow loading the contents from other origins also in Modal dialog which in your case will be from Host web.
