The params of action contains just an empty string?! Why?! At the very least it should give us the control:

[control#IDC]

I guess action is kinda deprecated, use https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/User_Interface_Event_Handlers#onButtonClick instead. It has everything you need.

'action' is some old OFP era relic I guess, it also seems to have a length limit so if you're in a bad habit like me and writing code into those config events you might end up scratching your head when code breaks with weird errors
