1. A method of dynamically allowing a user to select a configuration of viewable data displayed via a user's graphical user interface, the method comprising:
selecting an order of displaying the viewable data on the graphical user interface; and
executing a layout of the graphical user interface to include displaying the viewable data in a first cell portion of the layout of the graphical user interface in an order based on the selecting operation and a designated priority associated with the viewable data, wherein
when the viewable data in the first cell portion of the layout fails to fit within the first cell portion and overlaps into another cell portion reserved for other viewable data, x and y coordinates of the first cell portion are incremented and a replacement operation for executing the layout is performed, and
when a plurality of cells are displayed in the layout, a priority indicates an order for which the plurality of cells are displayed, and each of the priority of cells are assigned an identification that corresponds to the priority.
