As shown in your screenshot, the variable editor is able to display general information (i.e. the class name) for user classes.
But it might be possible to display a list of all (public) properties with their values.
See also bug #51847 for a similar feature for structures.

I re-titled this report to be less specific and changed it to a feature request for the GUI.

Variable editor doesn't show quaternion elements

Quick test code:
pkg load quaternion
quat1=quaternion(1,2,3,4) %define the axis to rotate around
