I am writing one long document using lyx. I wanted to add small tikz code within a caption of a figure of my document. However when I tried to run it it is giving following error. Please help me resolve this problem.

! Use of \use@pgfplotslibrary doesn't match its definition.
\pgfutil@ifnextchar ...1\def \pgfutil@reserved@a {
                                               #2}\def \pgfutil@reserved@...
l.1411 ... method \label{fig:Velocity-curves-for}}

Here is the code portion

 \documentclass{svmono}
 \usepackage{mathptmx}
 \renewcommand{\familydefault}{\rmdefault}
 \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
 \usepackage[latin9]{inputenc}
 \usepackage{color}
 \usepackage{float}
 \usepackage{amsmath}
 \usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{graphicx}
 \usepackage{esint}

You need to "protect" the TikZ picture if you are going to use it in section headings or figure captions.

Change

\tikz[baseline]\draw[dashed,thick, color = blue](0ex,0ex)--(1ex,0ex);

to

\protect\tikz[baseline]\protect\draw[dashed,thick, color = blue](0ex,0ex)--(1ex,0ex);

For more information, see the TeX FAQ entry on protection.
