Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'call' of undefined

I have a preexisting form which I'm trying to add jquery validation to containing :

<form id="form" method="POST" action="/title/">
{% csrf_token %}
<input type="hidden" name="id" value="6">
<input type="hidden" name="custom_checkbox_Electronic_Signature_man" value="1">
<p> <span class="style9">First Name </span>
<input type="text" name="first_name" value="" size="20" class="style7"><span class="style9">
Last Name </span>
<input type="text" name="last_name" value="" size="20" class="style7"><span class="style9">


Using the jquery validator plugin, I have added:

$('form').validate({
rules: {
first_name: {
minlen: 3,
maxlength: 15,
required: true
},
last_name: {
minlength: 3,
maxlength: 15,
required: true
},
email: {
required: true,
email: true
},
phone1: {
required: true,
phoneUS: true
},
phone2: {
required: true,
phoneUS: true
},
street: {
required: true
},
city: {
required: true
},
state: {
required: true
},
zip: {
zipcodeUS: true
}

},
highlight: function(element) {
$(element).closest('.style9').addClass('.style13');
//$(element).addClass('.style13');
},
unhighlight: function(element) {
$(element).closest('.style9').removeClass('.style13');
//$(element).removeClass('.style13');
},
errorElement: 'span',
errorClass: 'style13',
errorPlacement: function(error, element) {
if(element.parent('.input-group').length) {
error.insertAfter(element.parent());
} else {
error.insertAfter(element);
}
}
});


I'm getting the error listed above . What am I doing wrong?

Answer

Replace minlen with minlength, and it works, there is no minlen property, so call fails internally

$('form').validate({
    rules: {
        first_name: {
            minlength: 3,  // <- here
            maxlength: 15,
            required: true
        },
        last_name: {
            minlength: 3,
            maxlength: 15,
            required: true
        },
