JavaScript code in PDF

I have a PDF with two text fields on it "Today" and "Tomorrow".  I am trying to have the form read the "Today" field and then display "Today" + 1 day in the "Tomorrow" field.  So, if the "Today" text field is 2/18/2020 then the "Tomorrow" text field will read 2/20/2020.  Here is the code I have so far:
this.addScript("init", "var d = new Date(); var f = this.getField(\"Today\"); if (f.value==\"\") f.value = d; var t = this.getField(\"Tomorrow\"); t.value = t.setDate(d+1);")

The problem that i am having is that the "Tomorrow" field is not populating.

do you get the Today value populated from your code?
yes. The "Today" field does get populated.

Usually Javascript won't play well into PDF or not at all .
What do you use to generate the PDF?
