Not able to capure the objects of the screen which got opened after a button click in desktop application using object spy

I am trying to automate a desktop application, and while using object spy to capture object, I am only able to capture the main screen objects. But then there is no way to go the screen/form and capture the objects of the same which gets open as a result of some button click or menu selection on main screen. Can someone please help me on that.
