You can use a procedure that receives "self" as the `prop:evt' value.


#lang racket/base

(struct my-struct (my-wrapped-evt)
   #:property prop:evt (lambda (self)
                         (wrap-evt (my-struct-my-wrapped-evt self)
                                   (lambda (ignored)

(define (my-struct-read s)
   (read-byte (my-struct-my-wrapped-evt s)))

;; Test:

(define s (my-struct (current-input-port)))

(printf "s = ~S\n" s)

(let loop ()
   (write-string "Syncing...\n")
   (let ((my-evt-result (sync s)))
     (printf "Reading from ~S...\n" my-evt-result)
     (let ((v (my-struct-read s)))
       (printf "Read ~S\n" v)
