Sets which script is called if a menu item in this menu is selected.
You can use MenuItem.SetScriptAction to associate a script with individual items or use this function for a whole menu.
See also Menu.GetScriptFileName and Menu.GetScriptName.
The script parameter is the MenuItem reference, so you can use functions like MenuItem.GetTitle to get the title or MenuItem.GetTag to get an associated value.

With plugin version 6.0 or newer the script name can be a script ID number. In that case the plugin queries the script name for the given script ID. This allows to call scripts by ID and avoid problems if scripts are later renamed.
