If you want to get component parameter in your code, you can use following methods. Generally i used below methods to get component parameters. First you need to import Joomla component helper class into view.html.php.

get current component parameters
$app = JFactory::getApplication();
$params = $app->getParams();
$param = $params->get('show_create_date');

get another component parameters
$content_params = & JComponentHelper::getParams( 'com_content' );
$show_date = $content_params->get( 'show_create_date' );

get any Joomla component parameters one line code
