How to integrate 2 or more projects on TFS

Hello TFS/C# experts,

Let's imagine a solution has to be consist of 3 projects. Project A, B, and C.

Projects are developed independently and now it is time to place them all in one.

Assuming on TFS (tfs.visualstudio.com) we have two projects inserted already and nwo I like to add the 3rd project.

What and how should I do in order to insert my project as the 3rd project?
What are the steps that I have to follow here?

next question is how would those projet should be handshaking?

I am not aware of doing it for TFS. But I can share wisdom for doing it in real development.

There was similar requirement for us. What we did?

1. We copied the third project into root folder of first project.
2. Then right click in Solution Explorer and browse existing projects.
3. Then added that project.

For next question, how these project should be handshaking?

1. Build your all projects in solution.
2. Right click on References.
3. Browse project files from their bin\Debug or bin\Release folder. And add them.
4. Reference project in your current project by their namespace and classes.

Do you want the projects to stay separate, or get merged together into 1 solution?  If you want them to remain separate, then I would think that branching would be the better choice.  If you are merging, then you should do that outside of TFS.
