Hi,
Is it possible to enable horizontal scrolling on a MIDP form? I have a map image that is bigger than the size of the screen and would like to be able to navigate around it. If this is a horrifically bad idea, I'm open to alternatives

No, there's no specific way to turn it on. It's up to the implementation to act intelligently or not on the sizes of things, and obviously it chooses not to make it scrollable.
The only way to get around this is to display the image yourself on a Canvas and scroll it yourself. You could just display a thumbnail on the form and have a way to select it and jump to the custom Canvas that displays it.
