SearchDataSource AND / OR operator



What operator is used by default to perform a search query using the SearchDataSource control?
Is it possible to use and AND operator?

            SearchDataSource ds = new SearchDataSource
                EnableVisibleInMenu = true,
                MaxAllowHits = 999,
                SearchQuery = query,
                PublishedStatus = PagePublishedStatus.Published,
                FilterPagesWithoutTemplate = true,
                SearchFiles = true,
                PageLink = PageReference.StartPage,
                LanguageBranches = languageBranch

SearchDataSource does not use logical operators as such, but accepts the use of + (plus) and - (minus) in the search query text, see

Besides the SearchDataSource.SearchQuery property (which holds the search text which can include + or -), there is no property where you can specify which operands are allowed.
