How to get longitude and latitude of a city/country inputted through an input box?

I have this code,

<html>
<head>
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
function myIP(){
$("#btn").click(function(){
var geocoder = new google.maps.Geocoder();
geocoder.geocode( { 'address': '#city'}, function(results, status) {
if (status == google.maps.GeocoderStatus.OK) {
alert("location : " + results[0].geometry.location.lat() + " " +results[0].geometry.location.lng());
} else {
alert("Something got wrong " + status);
}
});
});
}
</script>
</head>
<body onload="myIP()">
<input type="text" id= "city">
<input id="btn" type="button" value="get Lat&Long" />
</body>
</html>


This will give me latitude and longitude of the inputted city in small dialog box. But I need this in the same page or parent page. Please help me
