If you go through the link you have provided, the solution is there itself.
It says like below...

After this step user is redirected back to your website ( Following is this callback code. Its purpose is to get a refresh-token and an access-token:
WebServerClient consumer= new WebServerClient(server, clientID, clientSecret);
consumer.ClientCredentialApplicator =
IAuthorizationState grantedAccess = consumer.ProcessUserAuthorization(null);

string accessToken = grantedAccess.AccessToken;

An access token is usually valid for a maximum of one hour, and allows you to access the user’s data. You also received a refresh token. A refresh token can be used to request a new access token once the previous expired.
