    I want to query my databases to find out if Auto Shrink is set. I know the status column in sysdatabases holds this value as a bit setting but I don't know how can I check this value using a query.

    select DATABASEPROPERTY('master','IsAutoShrink')

    see more in BOL about DATABASEPROPERTY

    BOL states AUTOSHRINK sysdatabases value:
    1 = TRUE

    0 = FALSE

    NULL = Input not valid
