Cancel delete on repeating section row

Is it possible to cancel the delete event on a repeating section row?

 

I have setup a prompt on the repeating section "RegisterRepeaterRowDeleting" event, if the user presses cancel I am throwing a JavaScript error to stop the row from being deleted, but I don't like this approach and wanted to know if there was any other way to stop the delete event from proceeding.

 

NWF.FormFiller.Events.RegisterRepeaterRowDeleting(function () {

   var confirmDelete = confirm("Are you sure you want to delete?");

    if (confirmDelete != true) {

       //this is the only way to stop deletion

       throw "Repeater deletion error thrown to cancel deleteion";

      //return false; -> just returning false didn't work

      }

});

 

NOTE: I have already tried just return false which did not work.
