The articles don't have object forms. It is the personal pronoun de which has the object form dem. The best way to tell the difference could be to check if it translates to they or the in English – of course in some dialects you could say "them yellow pants", but disregarding that, hopefully most people would prefer the yellow pants over they yellow pants. :)
