In order to check the validation, its better to write procedure. So you can call this procedure for all the Edit components within your project.

procedure CheckReal(Var EdBox : TEdit);
Var
    R : Real;
    Code : Integer;
Begin
    { Get text from TEdit control }
    Val(EdBox.Text, R, Code);
    { Val - Converts a string to a numeric representation. }

    { Error during conversion to Real? }
    If Code<>0 Then
    Begin
        R:=0;
        MessageDlg('Please check your input details ?', mtError, [mbOk], 0);
        EdBox.Text := '0.00';
        { Get focus back to edit box }
        EdBox.SetFocus;
    End Else
        { Pass formatted (with two decimal places) real value to text box }
        EdBox.Text := Format('%f', [R]);
    { Format - Returns a formatted string assembled from a format
    string and an array of arguments. }
End;

Now you can call above procedure in Edit component OnExit event.

procedure TForm1.Edit1Exit(Sender: TObject);
begin
    CheckReal(Edit1);
end;
