how to stop repeating alarm from another activity

I have set repeating alarm on multiple tasks in my app. I am getting all task notification properly. but when I am clicking on dismiss button the alarm is not cancelling.
I have created Alert Dialog notification to user.

I am passing DB _id to

PendingIntent
as
UniqueId
for multiple alarms on different tasks. alarm ringing properly but not stopping. please guide me to do this.

Here's my Activity class where I am setting alarms

protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.alarm_layout);
// some code..
setalarm.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {
@Override
public void onClick(View arg0) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub

idval=idval+1; // Fetching this Id from DB.
alarm_intent= new Intent(AlarmActivity.this, ReceiverActivity.class);
alarm_intent.putExtra("STR_TEXT", str_text);
alarm_intent.putExtra("CLS_ID", idval);
pendingIntent = PendingIntent.getBroadcast(AlarmActivity.this, idval, alarm_intent, PendingIntent.FLAG_UPDATE_CURRENT);

Date dat = new Date();//initializes to now
Calendar cal_alarm = Calendar.getInstance();
Calendar cal_now = Calendar.getInstance();
cal_now.setTime(dat);

// mYear, mMonth, mDay, mhours24, mminutes taking this vales from DatePicker & TimePicker

cal_alarm.set(mYear, mMonth, mDay, mhours24, mminutes, 0);
if(cal_alarm.before(cal_now))
{
cal_alarm.add(Calendar.DATE,1); //if its in the past increment
}

String temp_val=(String)spinner1.getSelectedItem();
AlarmManager noteam = (AlarmManager)getSystemService(Context.ALARM_SERVICE);
if(temp_val.equals("One Time"))
{
noteam.set(AlarmManager.RTC_WAKEUP, cal_alarm.getTimeInMillis(), pendingIntent);
}
else if(temp_val.equals("Every 5 Minutes"))
{
noteam.setRepeating(AlarmManager.RTC_WAKEUP, cal_alarm.getTimeInMillis(), 300000, pendingIntent);
}
else if(temp_val.equals("Every 10 Mintues"))
{
noteam.setRepeating(AlarmManager.RTC_WAKEUP, cal_alarm.getTimeInMillis(), 600000, pendingIntent);
}
else if(temp_val.equals("Every 30 Minutes"))
{
noteam.setRepeating(AlarmManager.RTC_WAKEUP, cal_alarm.getTimeInMillis(), 1800000, pendingIntent);
}
else if(temp_val.equals("Every 1 hour"))
{
noteam.setRepeating(AlarmManager.RTC_WAKEUP, cal_alarm.getTimeInMillis(), 3600000, pendingIntent);
}
}
});


}

and Another
Activity
where I am cancelling alarm

protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

//some code..
clsID=extra.getInt("CLS_ID");
new AlertDialog.Builder(AlertBoxNotification.this)
.setTitle("Title")
.setMessage("Message for user")
.setPositiveButton(android.R.string.ok, new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
@SuppressLint("NewApi")
@Override
public void onClick(DialogInterface arg0, int arg1) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
finish();
arg0.dismiss();
}
})
.setNegativeButton(R.string.dismissbtn, new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(DialogInterface arg0, int arg1) {
Intent intent = new Intent(AlertBoxNotification.this, AlarmActivity.class);
PendingIntent psender = PendingIntent.getBroadcast(AlarmActivity.mycontext = getApplicationContext(), clsID, intent, 0);
AlarmManager am = (AlarmManager)getSystemService(ALARM_SERVICE);
am.cancel(psender);
Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "Alarm cancel ", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();

}
}).create().show();
}

Answer

I have change this

PendingIntent psender = PendingIntent.getBroadcast(AlarmActivity.mycontext = getApplicationContext(), clsID, intent, 0);

to

 pISender = PendingIntent.getBroadcast(getBaseContext(), clsID, intent, 0);

and made PendingIntent to global. Now Alarm is cancelling from another activity(from dialog box).
