i mean

procedure TForm1.MaskEdit1KeyUp(Sender: TObject; var Key: Word;
  Shift: TShiftState);
begin
maskedit3.Text := FloatToStr(StrToFloat(Maskedit1.Text)*StrToFloat(MaskEdit2.Text));
end;

A MaskEdit has an OnChange event that changes when the value changes... But if you just want numeric values, consider using a SpinEdit instead. Or combine the MaskEdit with a TUpDown from the Win32 tab. Set the Associate property of the UpDown to the MaskEdit and it will do some interesting things too.
The combination MaskEdit/UpDown allows you to get the value from the UpDown component while using the MaskEdit.OnChange event to change the third MaskEdit.

A great set of edits that are much more powerful than the standard Delphi edits are ESB Consultants ESBPCS.  I can't recommend it enough!  The kit has specific edits for positive only, positive/negative integers, positive only, positive/negative floats, etc...
