call from javascript using chrome extension

The Chrome extension works great, but I need to run a function before dialing the number from my website. Like:


<button type='button' onclick=makecall('".$result->PHONE."')>".$result->PHONE."</button>


<script>

function makecall($number){


alert("tel:"+thenumber);

window.location.href("tel:"+$number);

}

</script>


Is there a function in the chrome extension I can call to send the number to the dialer?

RingCentral Chrome Extension is not open source and we don't provide any public API for it. So I am afraid that it doesn't exist.

I traced the debug of RC's own Chrome extension and this code works:
window.top.postMessage({
          type: 'c2d',
          number: '012231234567890',
          isQuickAccess: true
        }, '*');
