I am creating a console application in which I have a column named "Project Description". It's a multiline text field.

After I add some text with [spaces,quotes,"(",")"] all these included in that paragraph.

  1. I am unable to view the text after pasting in description field and saving it.
  2. I require code to retrieve the multiline text from the list.

  • so what do you want to do? be able to view it or want it through code? – Ali Jafer Jan 21 '14 at 8:34

Try this:

SPFieldMultiLineText multilineField = item.Fields.GetField(COLUMN_NAME) as SPFieldMultiLineText;

 if (multilineField != null)
 // Get the field value as HTML
 string text = multilineField.GetFieldValueAsHtml(item[COLUMN_NAME], item);
  • Good enough but how to do this with client side object model? – チーズパン Apr 22 '14 at 12:40
