How to check the progress when Shrinking Database SQL Server

Compacting a large databases in SQL Server can take what feels like forever. If you're like me self doubt is sure to set in as there is no way to tell that the command is progressing in SSMS!
However you can use the system views in SQL Server to see how its going using the following query:

SELECT percent_complete, start_time, status, command, estimated_completion_time, cpu_time, total_elapsed_time
FROM sys.dm_exec_requests

Works on SQL Server 2005+
