Project Description

I need somebody to fix my function so that it will work with all types of YouTube pages - branded / unbranded / old layout / new layout. Should be an easy task for anyone with past webbrowser automation, this is not my area as I usually use sockets compared to browser methods so am not fully versed with this yet.

Private Sub WebBrowserFollowUser(ByRef newBrowser As WebBrowser, ByVal UserID As String)
' Set Variables
Dim FoundComment As Boolean = False
Dim CurTime As Integer = 0
' Reset Timeout
CurTime = 0
' Load Comments Page
[url removed, login to view]("[url removed, login to view]" & UserID)
While (True)
[url removed, login to view]()
If ([url removed, login to view] = [url removed, login to view]) Then
GoTo ContinueProcess001
End If
[url removed, login to view](100)
CurTime += 1
If CurTime >= ([url removed, login to view] * 10) Then Throw New Exception("Loading YouTube Comments Page Timed Out")
End While
' Scrape All Comments
Dim HTMLCollection As HtmlElementCollection
' HTMLCollection = [url removed, login to view]("channel-header-main").GetElementsByTagName("button")
HTMLCollection = [url removed, login to view]("content").GetElementsByTagName("span")
Catch ex As Exception
Throw New Exception("Failed To Parse Comment HTML Elements For User: " & UserID)
End Try
' Loop Elements
Dim Voted As Boolean = False
Dim UnusedEles As String = ""
For Each TmpElement As HtmlElement In HTMLCollection
If Voted = True Then Exit For
' Check For Comment
If [url removed, login to view]("class").Contains("button-subscription-container") OrElse [url removed, login to view]("class").Contains("yt-uix-button-icon-wrapper") OrElse [url removed, login to view]("class").Contains("button-subscribe") OrElse [url removed, login to view]("class").Contains("subscription-button") Then
[url removed, login to view]()
[url removed, login to view]("click")
[url removed, login to view]()
Voted = True
End If
If Voted = False Then
Throw New Exception("Unable To Find Subscribe Button")
End If
