Steps to repro:
1. Create a new project.
2. Hierarchy > Create > Light > Area Light
3. Area Light > Inspector > Light > Burger Button > Open Properties window
4. Change Type to Spot OR Directional OR Point

Actual Result:
Properties window icon is not updating when a light type is changed

Expected Result:
Properties window icon is updated as per the light type

Note: Properties window is introduced in Unity 2020.1.0a19

Occurring in:
2020.2.0a9, 2020.1.0b7, 2020.1.0a19

  1. Resolution Note (2020.2.X):

    Actually this is not an issue. The property editor simply show the scene object icon, just like the one in the hierarchy or the inspector header. It is not meant to show custom icons based on the set of components the object has.
