MIDI to Casio lighted keys in real time?

If I send MIDI notes in real time to the MIDI in jack on a Casio LK series keyboard (with the lighted keys), will the keys light up?

This question is similar to this one,
but it's different in that I am not interested in playing MIDI files. I am more interested in just sending plain ol' MIDI notes to the MIDI in port on the keyboard. I want to know if, for example, I plug another MIDI controller into it, or...let's say.......send MIDI from Ableton....(grin), will the keys light up in real time? I don't have to worry about file conversion or any of that because I am not asking it to play an internal pre-sequenced pattern. I am just asking it to respond to the MIDI it is receiving in real time. Does this work on the Casio LK series keyboards? Does it work on some of them, but not all of them? Why would it have a MIDI in jack if this is not possible??? That would be a waste, so I'm hopeful.
