Now how to add reference to this ChatServerClss.cs from my ChatClient project. If right click go to add reference i get ChatServer reference but not chatserverclass. How can i do this pls help

You all need to add a reference to the dll.
Once that is done, include the name space for the class and it should be available for use (the access of the type should have been public though).

You can't directly reference code files through Add Reference.... However you can solve your problem by :-
1)Create new project select class library template option
2)Paste code of ChatServer.cs file into this file
3)now Build the project It will give you the .dll file
4)Now back to your main project Add Reference....
Select Browse tab and get the .dll file
now you need to use the namespace in the dll file
using <namespace_in_dll_file>
Now you can use the class's functionality in the project

Best of Luck.............

Add the reference if ChatServer
on top of file import the ChatServer as
using ChatServer;

and now you can access the class in the function or method

MyClass cls = new MyClass();

make sure the class has access modifier as public
