Creates a new MongoDB object.
For our plugin a Mongo DB object holds an URI, a client (the connection), a database, a collection (the table) and a cursor (the record set) all as one reference in FileMaker.


Create new MongoDB object:

Set Variable [ $Mongo ; Value: MBS( "MongoDB.New" ) ]
If [ MBS("IsError") ]
    Show Custom Dialog [ "Failed to create new MongoDB o…" ; $Mongo ]
    Exit Script [ Text Result: ]
End If
