i want to grow a climbing,evergreen plant in a pot in an area with no direct sunlight,are there such plants ?



Yes, ivies will grow, some have variegated leaves that light up the shade. Also, although they don't climb, ferns are happiest in shade.

There's Pilostegia viburnoides too, though it is a bit slow growing - but that just means it'll cope better in a pot for longer. Make sure you use a large container though, for either ivy or Pilostegia.
