What is the correct preposition here?

When you chat online, you type the words IN the "chatbox"

Or

When you chat online, you type the words ON the "chatbox"

*I've seen results of "in" and "on" used from google, but I'm not sure which to use.

    Neither, if you want to be precise. It's the chat box fields that are targeted, not the chat box itself. However, you type words into (or in) the appropriate fields, not on them. – Jason Bassford Jan 30 at 16:31
