     SO_GET_PART(kit, partName, partClass)
     SO_CHECK_PART(kit, partName, partClass)


       This  nodekit  class  is used to create light nodes that have a local transformation and a
       geometry icon to represent the light source. SoLightKit adds three  public  parts  to  the
       basic nodekit: transform, light, and icon.

       SoLightKit  creates  an  SoDirectionalLight as the light part by default - all other parts
       are NULL at creation.

       You can move the light relative to the rest of the  scene  by  creating  and  editing  the
       transform part.

       You  can add a geometrical representation for the light by setting the icon part to be any
       scene graph you like.

       SoLightKit also adds two private parts. An SoTransformSeparator  contains  the  effect  of
       transform to move only the light and icon, while allowing the light to illuminate the rest
       of the scene. The second private part is an SoSeparator, which keeps property nodes within
       the  icon  geometry from affecting the rest of the scene. It also serves to cache the icon
       even when the light or transform is changing.

       SoLightKit is derived from SoBaseKit and thus also includes a callbackList part for adding
       callback nodes.


     (SoTransform)       transform
          This  part  positions and orients the light and icon relative to the rest of the scene.
          Its  effect  is  kept  local  to   this   nodekit   by   a   private   part   of   type
          SoTransformSeparator.  The  transform part is NULL by default. If you ask for transform
          using getPart(), an SoTransform will be returned. But you may set the part  to  be  any
          subclass  of  SoTransform. For example, set the transform to be an SoDragPointManip and
          the light to be  an  SoPointLight.  Then  you  can  move  the  light  by  dragging  the
          manipulator with the mouse.

     (SoLight)           light
          The  light  node for this nodekit. This can be set to any node derived from SoLight. An
          SoDirectionalLight is created by default, and it is also the  type  of  light  returned
          when the you request that the nodekit build a light for you.

     (SoNode)            icon
          This  part  is a user-supplied scene graph that represents the light source. It is NULL
          by default — an SoCube is created by the lightkit when a method requires  it  to  build
          the part itself.



     static const SoNodekitCatalog *
                         getClassNodekitCatalog() const
          Returns an SoNodekitCatalog for the class SoLightKit.

     static SoType       getClassTypeId()
          Returns type identifier for this class.
